They use from variables to calculate the number from what I can tell.
Though it appears to be tunable. I'm not sure if adding something like
a SYSCTL is something we want to do. But as for bumping up the number
to 4096, I can't think of any reason not to go ahead. On my box I have 
NFS block size is 2048 though I can't be certain that's the default as 
machine was setup about 18 months ago. It is also running Solaris 9, 
someone with a default installation can comment.
